The inspiration for this blog comes from Deepak Chopra’s famous quote.
“Every cell is eavesdropping on your internal dialogue.”
What it means? What is our internal dialogue and do everyone have it?
So our ‘internal dialogue‘ is quite simply our thoughts or you can call it inner voice. It is the little voice in our head that comments on our life. All our existence there has been an inner voice offering guidance, and it goes by different names: inner voice, inner guide, spiritual guide, inner wisdom, etc.
And yes all of us have it which runs all the time. Some of us, however, may pay more attention to it than others, and be more skilled at manipulating it.
Can you recognise it now?
Our internal dialogue might help us to solve problems, inspire us but it can also put us down, which can lead to the development of anxiety, depression, etc. Therefore it is important to keep a light heart on our life journey and always move in the direction of our happiness, even if it not seems at first.
It is important to learn how to manage our inner voice, as we have all the answers within, though sometimes we may choose not to listen. When the voices of fear and doubt become the strongest within us, remember you have the choice to single it out. It is really important to establish healthy and positive inner voice and be able to recognise when our inner voice become critical. By identifying the critical inner voice and the role it plays in supporting our negative self-image, we can take action against it and significantly change our lives. We will feel like we have best friend within us with great ideas and management skills.
Let’s now see how our inner voice or internal dialogue impacting our cells in our body.
Do you know that expression – “I worried myself sick?” – can you recognise yourself when our inner voice is in the self destruction mode and try make the problem bigger then it is? It is like dumping toxic waste into our bodies by way of our thoughts. So we know that our negative self talk it is very harmful for our bodies. It is poisonous and it starts many serious illnesses.
On the other hand imagine waking up each morning eager and energetic, filled with hope and enthusiasm about life, prepared to handle any challenge. For an optimist, this happens every day. When we feel inspired, nothing stands in our way, which is why those with a positive mindset (internal dialogue) find the most success in life. Thats way it is very important to create a positive inner dialogue which energise our body and feel us in with a great possibilities.
Why is our internal dialogue important?
Simple, it allows us to be real with ourself. Provides logic and reasoning for use in a given situation. Helps us make choices about things we have a hard time deciding on. It can also be reflections of ourself, our relationships, our purpose in life, etc. Most important gives us self-love, self-understanding, and self-esteem so we will lead more of a happy and successful life.
Remember, what you say to yourself has a direct impact on how you feel, and how you experience life. Be aware of your internal dialogue and what you are constantly filling your head with. Change your internal dialogue and it changes how you experience the world. Improve the things you say to yourself and you’ll improve your experience in life.
Love & Shine always
